Hello everyone. I'm looking for an Headphone + Sound Card combo for about 100$, do you know any? I'm going to use it mostly for gaming, but I do like some rock n roll sometimes... hehehe 
I thought about the Audio Technica ATH-M30 (42$) and the Asus Xonar DS 7.1 (43$) and saving the rest for a good mic.
OBS: If you could post links from Amazon it would make it a lot easier for me :wink:
OBS2: I don't know if this is the correct area for my post. If it's not, I'm sorry :p
Thanks.
